For over 60 years, our team has welcomed new lives into the world. Welcome to North Memorial Health Family Birth Center – Robbinsdale Hospital. Parking vouchers are available for all Family Birth Center patients and their guests. Patients enter through the main hospital atrium entrance. The Family Birth Center is located on the west side on floor 3. Upon arrival, you’ll be admitted to the Labor and Delivery unit. You’ll stay in the same private room from labor and delivery to discharge.

Our private, intimate and quiet rooms include: a personal breast pump, room service, and TV with education, guided imagery, movies, and on-demand music, as well as an individual bubble tub and shower, a personal robe, and a pull-out chair. We provide engaged laborist support on our unit 24/7. We have services and technology for the most complex births, including maternal-fetal medicine. Additionally, we offer various pain management techniques including: a variety of laboring positions, birthing balls, breathing techniques, epidurals, integrative therapy, nitrous oxide, and soaking tubs. We offer two operating rooms with one of the lowest C-Section rates in the state.

A communal waiting room is available for your birth partner, as together, you await delivery. Or have them visit our Healing Garden for a breath of fresh air. Average length of stay: Vaginal Delivery: 24-40 hours; C-Section Delivery: Up to 3 days. Our nurses are specially trained to provide breastfeeding support.

We’re excited to see you and be at your side.

Pre-Register For Your Delivery

The Labor and Delivery Experience

  • Our Labor and Delivery department is intimate and quiet. Families enjoy a private room with a calming environment for recovering and bonding.
  • We are the only hospital in the west metro that practices the LDRP method of care, which means you labor, deliver, recover, and spend postpartum time all in one room. One unit, one room, one care team.
  • Our nurses are highly experienced and devoted. They’ve provided tens of thousands of hours of care, and many nurses have worked here for two to three decades.
  • We provide engaged laborist support on our unit 24/7. A laborist is a highly trained and experienced OB/GYN physician who practices exclusively within the hospital. Laborists specialize in managing any labor that comes through the door and have extensive experience with pregnancy-related complications.
  • We respect and maintain cultural expectations.
  • We provide epidurals without delay 24/7. We support VBACs (vaginal birth after C-section) and external versions.
  • We offer birthing balls, nitrous oxide, bubble-jet tubs, and aromatherapy for labor relief, along with epidurals and IV pain medication.
  • We have one of the lowest C-section rates in the state.
  • We are prepared for any labor and delivery that comes through the doors and respond to critical emergencies seamlessly.
  • We provide low risk newborn care for babies 36 weeks of gestation and up.
  • Our labor and delivery units offer meticulous care and resources.
  • Parents can choose between family medicine doctors and pediatricians for those first-days checkups.

Doula/Labor Coach

We are a doula-friendly hospital and endeavor to keep you with your doula if you choose throughout the whole labor and delivery process, barring an emergency.

A Healthy Baby is Worth the Wait

The March of Dimes and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists agree: Healthy pregnancies should last until at least 39 weeks gestation to give babies all the time they need to grow and develop. We make sure providers have a medical reason to deliver babies before 39 weeks.

Interpreter Services

We offer support options for deaf, hard of hearing, language assistance and translation services. These services are all free of charge and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for patients at North Memorial Health.
